Qatar Airways marks Breast Cancer Awareness month with exclusive amenity kits and ‘Think Pink’ onboard menu
Qatar Airways has played a significant role in the global aviation industry since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The airline has safely taken home more than 2.3 million passengers on over 35,000 flights in the last couple of months.
On Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Qatar Airways will offer its passengers an exclusive ‘Think Pink' experience in the sky as well in its lounges, offering custom-designed limited-edition amenity kits and pink-themed special menus.
For the fourth consecutive year, the airline continues to show its commitment to raising awareness of breast cancer, offering passengers traveling on long-haul and ultra-long-haul flights in Business Class a luxury amenity bag designed in-house and created exclusively for Qatar Airways by stylish Italian luggage brand BRIC'S.
The exclusive amenity kits are made from vegan leather and there are male and female options available. Both kits feature a unique zipper pull in the shape of the iconic breast cancer ribbon.
The kits are further customized with a message imprinted on a band, reading, ‘Think pink and support the fight’.
Each kit contains select products from Italy's Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio, the environmentally friendly and innovative nutrition-centric olive oil company.
The skincare range includes lip balm, hydrating facial mist, and anti-aging moisturizer, as well as pink socks and eyeshades.
In addition, on flights departing from Doha, passengers traveling in Business Class will have the opportunity to savor special, pink-themed treats onboard such as pink guava and grape lemonade and assorted desserts with the iconic pink ribbon.
On all ultra-long-haul flights departing from Doha, passengers will be served a special pink afternoon tea menu featuring raspberry macaroons and opera cake.
Qatar Airways Al Mourjan Business Lounge will feature pink flower arrangements, serve refreshing pink mocktails to passengers and offer a variety of pink sweet treats as well as the ‘Think Pink’ afternoon tea menu, which also includes a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, scones, and pastries.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said, “Qatar Airways is a very strong supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we are pleased to offer these unique luxury amenity kits to our passengers, As an airline, we are inspired by the tremendous global effort that has gone into fighting this disease. We hope our message of breast cancer awareness reaches as many people as possible.”
Economy Class passengers traveling on overnight long-haul and all ultra-long-haul flights are also offered limited edition breast cancer awareness amenity kits. The bags feature the pink ribbon and include eyeshades, socks, earplugs, lip balm, toothbrush, and toothpaste. Pink raspberry or strawberry mousse desserts will be served on all lunch and dinner services on all flights departing from Doha.
Qatar Airways, in partnership with Qatar Cancer Society (QCS), has joined forces with Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar Aviation Services (QAS), and Qatar Duty Free (QDF) to show their united support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month ‘Think Pink’ activities to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention and control.
According to the latest IATA data, Qatar Airways has become the largest international carrier between April to June by fulfilling its mission of taking people home. This enabled the airline to accumulate unmatched experience in carrying passengers safely and reliably and uniquely positioned the airline to effectively rebuild its network. The carrier has stringently implemented the most advanced safety and hygiene measures onboard its aircraft and in Hamad International Airport.
To ensure travelers can plan their travel with peace of mind in the current climate, the airline has extended its booking policies to offer even more choice to its passengers. The airline allows unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 5,000 miles of the original one. The airline will not charge any fare differences for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules will apply. All tickets booked for travel up to December 31, 2020, will be valid for two years from the date of issuance.
